Panerai PAM243 Luminor Submersible Tritium Dial Box & Papers

Panerai PAM243 Luminor Submersible Tritium Dial Box & Papers

For us vintage snobs, modern watches can be a touchy subject. Either they give us the same palpitations that their vintage brethren do, or they make us feel, well, dead inside.  And for those of you who know us well, you already know that Panerai isn't a brand you're likely to find on our wrists.

That said, there is no denying the allure of their original professional diving watch: the Luminor Submersible.  With a supremely rugged case design, signature rotating bezel, 5mm thick sapphire crystal, Helium Escape Valve, and large luminescent dive-style hands, this was a beast when it hit the market and is just as much so today.  While big watches are generally on the "outs" in terms of acceptable fashion, purpose-built tool watches such as this one get a pass.  While this example appears never to have seen rough usage, there is no doubt that it could take most anything you could throw at it.  This is a model that Paneristi covet, for good reason.

This particular Submersible features one of the last Tritium dials offered by Panerai, dating from 2008.  It is in fantastic condition over all, with a recent full service and professional case refinishing that makes it look brand new, aside from a slight patination to that gorgeous Tritium!  This piece also comes complete with its full kit: Inner and outer boxes, paperwork, tools, service documents and two genuine Panerai straps. If you are looking for a large, professional-grade diver with unmistakable looks, you've found your next watch!


Steel case is approximately 44mm (excluding the crown). Panerai Reference PAM243. Calibre OPIII Automatic Movement. Originally purchased in August, 2008.

Overall condition: Case is in excellent condition with recent professional refinishing. Original dial and hands are in similarly excellent condition with a very light yellowing of the original Tritium luminescent elements. Original bezel, signed case back and crown protector.

Includes genuine Panerai rubber and nylon straps with signed buckles. Also includes original inner and outer boxes, tools and paperwork, including service documentation from June, 2014.
